Lately, things for me have been one of those times that life has just happened. I’ve had this to do or that to do OR this has happened and that has happened. So, some things have had to give, which mainly means work outs.
Truth is, with everything that has been going on, I just haven’t FELT like working out. I’m quite happy if I just maintain, and it is PAR-TAY time if I have a small loss. And that’s okay. There are times when working out just can’t be our focus, and we have to make sure that we stay in control and not go too crazy.
I think I’ve done a pretty good job with that, but seriously folks…it’s time to get back to it. With everything going on right now, there has been just ONE thing that has gotten my tail into gear.
Wanna know my secret?
Lean in close…
BATHING SUIT SEASON IS GETTING CLOSE.
But if I’m being honest, it isn’t just bathing suit season. It’s the summer season in general. I want to look good in my tanks and sleeveless tops. I want to look fabulous in my shorts and my size 6 clamdiggers from The Gap. I want to buy new cute summer clothes in a smaller size than I am now.
But isn’t that a vain way of looking at things, you ask? Why yes it is, but there is nothing wrong with that. We all want to look good in what we wear don’t we? You know how it feels to go into a store and try on a pair of jeans in a smaller size and have those jeans fit. It really is a pump your fists in the air right there in the dressing room because you know no one is looking kind of moment, isn’t it? (Don’t act like you’ve never done it. I KNOW you have.) It makes us feel like all of that hard work we put in has paid off, and it makes us want to work harder.
So, if you’re having trouble getting motivated lately, think about going and trying on clothes and expecting to do a happy dance in the dressing room. Sometimes it’s the little things that can get us going.
And I sit here writing this with almost every inch of my body sore because I’ve gotten great work outs in all weekend. That’s a first in a while, let me tell you. My plan right now is to take life as it comes, but get great work outs in when I can, so that I can look good in my bathing suit.
Talk to me…what do YOU want to look good in this spring/summer?
